Function can be implemented in Chrome 86
The “gluttony” of the Google Chrome browser is a problem known to many. Although in fact it cannot be said that it is that great. In any case, Google is constantly working on various options for how to make its creation faster and more economical.
According to the source, the search giant is now testing a new Battery-Savings Meta Tag feature to save battery power on mobile devices, and it will be implemented not only in the browser itself, but also on websites.
The function will allow websites to recommend various battery saving measures to the browser. This can be, for example, a decrease in the frame rate or a general slowdown in the execution of various scripts. Sites will also be able to change their behavior depending on the battery saving settings, making the appropriate changes to their codebase. In the future, this will allow sites to determine if the power saving feature is active on a particular device and to act in accordance with this data.
The source adds that Google is going to experiment with this feature in Chrome 86 and 87.
